I have done a great deal of searching on this issue and I cannot find a solution to my problem that works.
my setup: my server (ubuntu 9.10 server) is directly connected to my linksys router via eth0 (and this is the exact setup this server has been in for the last year... until the hard drive crashed a week ago)
On install when i was asked for network information I chose to manual in order to get a specific address.
The configuration was something like this
now that it is finished installing I cannot access the internet or even ping my local network addresses.Code:address 192.168.1.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 gateway 192.168.1.1 nameserver x.x.x.148 x.x.x.147 127.0.0.1 192.168.1.1
I have tried verifying /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/resolv.conf which provides the same information
I have also tried to setup a default route using
this does not return an error... but it still does not allow me to access anything on the networkCode:route add default gw 192.168.1.1
I have also tried setting up eth0 (and others) as dhcp and when I restart /etc/init.d/networking it fails to receive a DHCP response.
Does anyone see anything I have missed?
